Internet Communication and Harassment
For the second time in six months, another friend of mine called to tell me about a terrible email from a student. The first situation happened to a friend of mine in the US, where a student harassed her via email and tried to convince of her of how terrible she was at teaching. She was the instructor for the course.

tracy makes important points in this blog entry. I won't reiterate them, but I would not put up with students acting like this, and I agree it is harrassment, and the students need to know what is wrong with it. If there are issues with teaching, students need to know that they have a way of handling it, usually a note to the department head or class supervisor will generate the reasonable response of a peer review, whereas the harrassment method is completely inappropriate.
